India and Pakistan Armies Greet and share sweets on borders on the occasion of New Year 2021

On Saturday morning, Indian and Pakistani Army officials swapped sweets at four locations, demonstrating the friendly relations between the two countries. In the context of the continuing ceasefire between the two countries, the ceremony is considered an additional confidence-building gesture.

Sweets and greetings were shared at four spots along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir provinces, namely the Mendhar Hot Springs crossing point, Poonch Rawlakot crossing point, Chakoti Uri crossing point, and Chilliana Tithwal crossing point.

To encourage mutual trust and calm, the Indian Army and Pakistan Army exchanged sweets and greetings at the Poonch and Mendhar Crossing Points at the start of the year 2022. Given the ongoing ceasefire along the India-Pakistan border, this gesture aims to improve peace and harmony in Jammu and Kashmir,” says Jammu-based Defence PRO Col Devender Anand.

According to a statement released by the Foreign Office on Saturday, Pakistan and India have exchanged lists of nuclear installations and facilities in accordance with an agreement binding both nations to divulge pertinent information by January 1 of each year.

The exchange was conducted in accordance with Article II of the Pakistan-India Agreement on the Prohibition of Attacks on Nuclear Installations and Facilities, which was signed on December 31, 1988 and ratified on January 27, 1991.
